Mame's Carrot Cake


Mame’s Carrot Cake Recipe

Mame’s Recipe from Eileen 1978
 
Sift together:
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1-1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
 
Mix:
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups oil or [1-1/2 cups applesauce]
 
Add:
4 eggs or [1 cup Eggbeaters]
2 cups finely grated carrots
1-8 oz. can crushed pineapple [drained]
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3-1/2 oz. can flaked coconut
1 cup raisins [optional]

Bake at 350 degrees  in 3 - 9"round pans for 35- 40 minutes.

Cool cakes completely before frosting.
 
    
 
Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
1-8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 lb. confectioners’ sugar [about 3-1/2 cups]
 
      Beat all ingredients until smooth.

Mame's note: I have whipped heavy whipping cream to stiff peaks and folded it into the Cream Cheese Icing and it was awesome. Sorry I didn't measure, I just winged it; but the consistency is not meant for decorating as it is much too thin. But OH so YUMMO!!
